Clay puppets

We’re built from clay, just heat us up and you can shape us
in the wrong hands, we will think that you might break us
we learned from youth how to construct our home-made cages
laws are designed to protect us against our neighbours

These neon lights are oh so bright, they make us forget
that you control our every move in every aspect
like children do, we thought that you could not be lying
now it turns out that the shy truth is often hiding.
